Lunch Break! Brownie and Pearl Grab a Bite by Cynthia Rylant


Brownie and Pearl are ready to take a break from their jigsaw puzzle and raid the fridge for the midday meal. What looks good?

Pearl puts her paw on the package of string cheese.

Pearl takes a nibble and then rolls over to play with her stick of cheese.

Brownie finishes her cheese and spots a basket of apples on the kitchen table. Brownie picks out a couple of apples and takes a bite of hers.

Pearl pushes the other apple around the floor. Brownie tells her not to play with her food!


Brownie tries to nibble her crackers into interesting shapes. Pearl holds up one square in the shape of a P for her name.

And finally the two agree that they need something to drink. Brownie gets the carton out of the refrigerator and pours herself a glass and pours Pearl a bowl of milk. YUMMY!

It's a do-it-yourself luncheon for pals Brownie and Pearl the cat, in Cynthia Rylant's easy-reader, Brownie and Pearl Grab a Bite (Beach Lane Books). Brian Biggs provides the gently humorous illustrations that extend the simple text with humorous details.
